TGS 2012: Monster Hunter 4 Hits Japan In 2013, Gets New Trailer

Posted on September 21, 2012 AT 11:55am

Capcom’s Monster Hunter 4 may not be a multi-platform affair, but it’ll be making its rounds on the 3DS in March 2013. That’s Japan’s release window, and a worldwide launch should follow.

Naturally, it’s way too early to assume when North America, Europe, and everyone else gets a copy.

In fact, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (alternatively titled Monster Hunter Tri G in Japan), which came out in Japan for the 3DS in December 2011, won’t see a stateside release until March 2013.

That’s a huge gap between versions, especially for such a popular franchise.

Then again, the series isn’t nearly as popular in America as it is in Japan.

At the very least, people outside of Japan who’ve been patiently waiting for some localized Monster Hunter action will eventually get a double dose of it, since the March release for MH3U will be a 3DS and Wii U endeavor.
